This is a rather late addition to this thread brought about by the fresh installation of LinuxMint 14 Nadia.
System sound effects other than login were not active and the installation of "aisleriot" had no sound option.
I installed gnome-cards-data in order to get extra card themes but the sound option was still missing. I then installed Ubuntu Tweak 0.8.2 and activated "Event Sounds", "Login Sound" and "Input Feedback Sounds" with the LinuxMint theme.
You can get the .deb file of ubuntu-tweak here:https://launchpad.net/ubuntu-tweak/+download
Now I have a working Sound option in the Control tab in aisleriot.
